Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling's latest attack on the dignity and rights of trans people is on a reform bill being put forward by Nicola Sturgeon, the First Minister of Scotland, that would simplify the process for trans people to legally change their gender by way of obtaining a gender recognition certificate.

This certificate is what’s required for them to receive a new birth certificate reflecting their correct gender. To be clear this is a process that already exists in the country, the reform simply shortens the process.

Naturally, Rowling, a noted TERF — meaning a "trans-exclusionary radical feminist" — is incensed.Currently, applicants must be “medically diagnosed as having gender dysphoria, go through a minimum two-year process, and be aged over 18,” according to The Times.
